44-09-18 Vic's Greeting Cards

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN AND DAVID WHITEHOUSE

Vic falls prey to a greeting card seller and buys a stack of them, despite the fact that he has no need or want for the awful things. Sade antagonizes him for spending money foolishly while Russell makes fun by reading the hideous things aloud.
________________________
Not in the least bit funny and the card poetry is so beyond bad that they do not raise a smile; the curiosity with the show may be it's ending, where Russell is soundly castigated by Vic.

Trivia:

+ This the first time we hear of Mis' Gullstone in the surviving series. She is the greeting card seller and some bad cards they are!

+ Vic seems to literally be playing Sade's part when she is victimized by Christmas card sellers.

+ Vic bought a total of 14 cards; they ranged in price from 10 to 15 cents.

+ There is an unusual card about the University of Oklahoma. This card seems to be an inside joke by writer Paul Rhymer on then-director Homer Heck, who apparently (if he's anything like the oft-mentioned Heck on the show) is from Norman. Norman is the home of the university.

As stated above, the show has an odd ending: {{{HEAR}}}

  1. I don't think the ending is odd -- Vic is saying to Russell what he earlier wishes he had said to Mis' Gullstone.

    I would probably buy those cards myself, and use them. They're hilarious.
